Drink This and That: New Beverages to Quench Your Thirst

We’ve been walking the city more and more as the weather gets warmer, it is one of our favorite things to do. Of course all this walking means we have to stay properly hydrated, keep our energy up, and do what we can to continue burning off these winter accumulated calories. While we can stay hydrated with the regular H2O, we prefer to keep ourselves refreshed with beverages that offer more than just simple replenishment. Today we share three brands, two are old favorites welcoming new flavors, and the other is a newly launched beverage we’ve become slightly addicted to. we’re happy to get you acquainted with the new flavors from POM Wonderful, and Cascade Ice, and introduce you to Positive Energy. Let begin with the new beverage brand first.

Positive Energy

We usually get our caffeine with one or three hot cups of tea, but you can’t really hydrate with tea when you’re averaging 4-5 miles a day, plus we prefer to feel more energized naturally. Fortunately we can, thanks to the pure fruit juices + caffeine found in Positive Energy. These revolutionary beverages contain 100% pure fruit juices and green coffee beans plucked directly from the trees. Available in six juices, Orange, Cranberry, Apple, Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Peach Mango Lemonade, and Lemonade Tea, the non-GMO, gluten-free and kosher Positive Energy, boasts only 60 calories, the same amount of caffeine as a large cup of premium coffee, no added sugar, no preservatives, and no artificial flavors. You can enjoy them straight out of the bottle like we do, or mix them in a smoothie or cocktail for a burst of natural energy. Grab yourself a 2-Pk, 6-Pk, or 12-Pk on www.drinkpositiveenergy.com.

POM Wonderful

These officially launched late last year but because they are so popular, We hadn’t had the pleasure of trying all of them, especially in one sitting so we were in heaven. As self-proclaimed tea lovers, and POM Wonderful addicts, we had no qualms about loving these. POM Wonderful’s range of new Antioxidant Super Teas combines the antioxidant power of their premium 100% Pomegranate Juice delicious gently brewed teas to bring out their natural flavors and body. These super teas, available in Pomegranate Lemonade Tea, Pomegranate Sweet Tea, Pomegranate Honey Green Tea, and Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea are as delicious and addictive as you’d expect. If you love ice tea and lemonade, sweet tea, or my favorite of all time, POM’s Lychee Green Tea, you will love these free radicals busting beverages.  All four flavors are available now, in POM Wonderful’s uniquely shaped 12 oz. bottles for $1.99 each.

Cascade Ice

We mentioned that we wanted to stay hydrated with more than just plain old water and we mean it. Cascade Ice Flavored Sparkling Water is more than just water, this zero-calorie sparkling flavored waters come in 21 delicious and unique flavors, are free of sugar, calories, sodium, caffeine, and gluten, full of flavor, and have a delightful “fizz” combined with natural fruit juices. they recently held a public vote on Facebook where consumers selected the newest flavor to add to their current 21-flavor collection.

Healthy Hydration w/ Cascade Ice Organic Sparkling Flavored Waters

We’ve shared several low calorie drink recipes of Cascade Ice made with Cascade Ice Cocktail Mixes and Sparkling Waters with Juice, today we’re highlighting the two new flavor addictions to their range of USDA certified Organic Sparkling Flavored Waters. With zero calories, zero grams of sugar, no sweeteners, and zero carbs, this sodium-free, caffeine-free, and gluten-free sparkling flavored waters will keep you refreshed and happy.

Who says your water has to be boring and tasteless. With the organic fruit oils and extracts that are in the Cascade Ice Organic Sparkling Flavored Waters, your taste buds will be delighted with every sip of this sparkling essence. Joining the current organic flavors of Mixed Berry, Lemon Zest, Citrus Twist and Lemon Lime, are Organic Blueberry, and Organic Grapefruit, two tart flavors for continuous guilt-free enjoyment.

If you’re asking yourself, can these make cocktails better, they can. If you love White and Red Sangria, pour in 1/4 cup of the Organic Blueberry Sparkling Flavored Water to cut your calorie intake and add the sweet and tart blueberry flavor because when it comes to Sangria, we think the more fruit flavors, the better. For cocktail ideas using the Organic Grapefruit Sparkling Flavored Water, we recommend adding 1/4 cup to the classic Mimosa or 3/4 cup to a Grapefruit Margarita to instantly turn it into a sparkling margarita. You won’t lose the delicious tastes even though your cocktails will be healthier. For a list of retailers that carry Cascade Ice Organic Sparkling Flavored Waters, check out the store locator.
